Relationship to other parameters

z/OS MVS JCL Reference

Code the OUTLIM parameter only on a DD statement with the SYSOUT parameter.

Do not code the OUTLIM parameter with the DCB subparameters CPRI or THRESH; these subparameters can alter the OUTLIM value.

On dump DD statements: On a SYSABEND or SYSUDUMP DD statement:
  • JES3 ignores the OUTLIM parameter.
  • JES2 limits the output as specified on the OUTLIM parameter.

Not only can JECL statement limit output, but the OUTLIM parameter is applied independently of other limits.
